    I'm going to interpret your question my own way, so that I can give a biased opinion without having it in the inevitable debate. I think the "greatest rock album ever" was "Hwy. 61 Re-Visited" Dylan 1965. The producer was Bob Johnston. Just playing : )

    Probably say Spector for a straight answer. Tough to rule out George Martin, Sam Phillips, Eddie Kramer, Tom Doud.

  • Definitely Eddie Kramer! What a career- Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, KISS, the Beatles, Traffic, the Rolling Stones, Peter Frampton, David Bowie, Joe Cocker, Santana, Anthrax, Robin Trower, Eric Clapton, etc etc, and also did the recording for Woodstock. Nobody can touch his legacy.

    I'm going with Rick Rubin.

    Artists as diverse as Slayer, The Dixie Chicks, THe Chili Peppers, The Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, and Neil Diamond amongst others.

    And a lot of them put out their best album under him.

    Gotta go to Sir George Martin.

    Without him, The Beatles could not've pulled off half their ideas in the later years.
